World Class Brake doubler

OK, I'm building up a new bike, the frameset will be here soon and I have all the parts on order with QBP. But one part I need has been discontinued I need to find a World Class Brake doubler. This little do-hicky* will let me control the two front brakes from one lever. Any of you other shop monkeys have one you will part with? New or used I don't care. If I have to I'll make one, but it would save me a lot of time if I could just buy one.

Or do you mean either left or right lever will pull the front brake?

Thats ok, I found one. Thanks

Fixer what your thinking of is a london mod. Two levers will pull one brake. What I need was one lever to pull two brakes. I've used them before to set up bikes for riders with special needs. As well as on Tri bikes. The bike I'm building up is a tandem recumbent trike and has two front brakes. I want to control the front brakes on one lever, rear rim brake on the other.... and a hub mounted drum brake on the rear wheel with a thumb shifter.

If there is either a tandem or bicycle polo club in your area, check with them. My son's freestyle bike has a clip which combines the two under-the-downtube brake cables for attachment to the straddle cable yolk. (A freestyle bike has trick brake cable routing which permits the front wheel to be rotated continuously without binding the cables.)

For tandems, Mafac used to make a lever with two cable pulls.
